l8oO AND 1850 



EVERY attempt has been made to render this hand-list as com- 
prehensive as possible. While the register of the French 
repertoires at the St James's Theatre has been entirely omitted 
because of exigencies of space, and while the records of foreign 
operas produced in England have been considerably curtailed, 
all other purely dramatic forms are here included. Ballets (when 
these were not merely individual dances), spectacles, pantomimes 
and entertainments find their places here alongside regular tragedy 
and comedy. It may be that some of the material gathered and 
presented here will not prove of much general or immediate use ; 
but comprehensiveness has been aimed at, first, because no effort 
has hitherto been made to survey the theatrical activities of this 
half-century, and, secondly, because the correct interpretation of 
the dramatic movements of the period demands that full attention 
should be paid to the efforts and even to the more trivial efforts 
of the minor theatres. It is certain that further research will pro- 
vide many additions to this hand-list, but I believe it will be found 
that I have succeeded in listing at least the vast majority even of 
the lesser pieces of the time. 

The difficulties in the preparation of this 1800-1850 hand-list 
have been immeasurably greater than those encountered in the 
preparation of the lists for the years 1660-1700, 1700-1750 and 
1750-1800. For the earlier plays the Biographia Dramatica proved 
a useful, if an occasionally erring and incomplete guide; at least 
some bibliographical work had been accomplished on a few in- 
dividual authors; while attention had to be devoted in the main 
only to a few important theatres. During this period the theatres 
multiply decade by decade ; practically nothing has been done in a 
scholarly way on the bibliography of the subject ; the libraries have 
not troubled to make extensive collections of these minor dramas, 

and of reliable guides there are none. The latest issue of the Bio- 
graphia Dramatica appeared in 1812. Genest neglects entirely the 
activities of the minors, and in any case ends his survey with the 
year 1830. Clarence in The " Stage "Cyclopaedia (1909) is not only 
often inaccurate, but neglects almost entirely the pieces produced 
at the lesser theatres. Barely half a dozen of the numerous Coburg 
melodramas find mention in his pages. The same weaknesses are 
to be discovered in W. Davenport Adams's A Dictionary of the 
Drama (1904), which, moreover, extends only as far as the letter 

NDII l6 


G. It will be realised, therefore, that the labour of gathering the 
material has been very much greater (not merely because of the 
multiplicity of plays) and that the possibilities of having permitted 
single dramas to escape the net have been markedly increased. 

Luckily, two main sources of information have come to my aid. 
The Larpent Collection of dramatic MSS., now in the Henry E. 
Huntington Library, which was used so largely for the 1750-1800 
hand-list, preserves plays of as late a date as 1824. It was in that 
year that it became definitely (and illegally) private property. By 
the courtesy of the Lord Chamberlain I have been enabled to make 
use of the continuation of this official collection. In the cellars of 
the Office of Works there is preserved a library of plays in manu- 
script submitted to the licenser from the year 1824 onwards. For 
some reason the period from 1824 to ^3 2 1S not so completely 
represented as are the later decades, but altogether we have here 
nearly three-quarters of the entire dramatic output during twenty- 
five years. Personally, I can find no explanation for the vagaries 
of the Larpent and Lord Chamberlain's MSS. One would have 
expected to find all the theatres represented in them, but in point 
of fact before 1832 only plays produced at the "majors," at the 
English Opera House, at the Pavilion (Astley's) and at the Adelphi 
seem to have been preserved. It is possible that the confusion 
then reigning in the minds of many concerning the precise power 
of jurisdiction possessed by the Lord Chamberlain over the minors 
may in some way account for these facts, but this in itself does not 
seem to provide a full explanation. Several of these MS. dramas 
appear with titles differing from those accorded to the plays when 
they were acted, a discrepancy which may have led to a certain 
small duplication. So far as was possible, 1 have tried to equate 
these double-titled plays, but here and there, perhaps, I have let 
a manuscript version slip in as a separate entity alongside its other 
self, the acted play. 

The arrangement of material here follows largely the 
arrangement adopted in the hand-list to my last volume. 
A summary of the methods employed will make the system clear. 

I. First is indicated, in abbreviated form, the nature of the play 
itself. The asterisk used in A History of Late Eighteenth Century 
Drama has been dispensed with owing to the enormous number 
of unprinted plays. The abbreviations used are the following: 

Ba. Burletta Ca. Comedietta 

Bal. Ballet C.D. Comic Drama 

BaLP. Ballet Pantomime C.Ent. Comic Entertainment 

B.O. Ballad Opera C Int. Comic Interlude 

Bsq. Burlesque C.O. Comic Opera 

C. Comedy C.P. Comic Pantomime 

1800-1850 237 

Operatic Drama 
Operatic Entertainment 
Operatic Extravaganza 
Operatic Farce 
Operatic Pantomime

Pantomimic Sketch 

Pantomimic Ballet 
Pantomimic Comedy 
Pantomimic Farce 
Political Play 
Pantomimic Romance 

Romantic Burletta 
Romantic Comedy 
Romantic Drama 
Romantic Opera 
Romantic Spectacle 

Spectacle [or Specta- 

As will readily be realised, these designations are in no way 
final, and are often indefinite. Thus Domestic and Romantic 
Dramas fall under the general heading of Melodrama, while a 
Burletta may be an Operatic Farce or a Burlesque or a Melodrama. 
Where possible, the designation employed in the original bills has 
here been followed. 

2. The dates enclosed in round brackets after the title are those 
of production. The full list of theatres and abbreviations will be 
found in Appendix A. Here three points are to be noted : 

(a) Where I have been able definitely to establish a date of 
production, the full date, with indication of the day of the week, 
is given. In some instances, however, I find records which I have 
been unable to verify; the records are then presented without 
indication of the day. 

(b) Where I have found a play marked as new at a certain 
theatre but have a suspicion that this was merely a revival of an 
earlier piece, I have presented the double dates within round 
brackets. Occasionally I may thus have erred in identifying two dis- 
tinct pieces; but in general my practice here has been conservative. 

(c) Where no date in round brackets appears it must not be 



Comic Romance 



Comic Sketch 



Comic Spectacle 






Domestic Drama 



Dramatic Farce 






Dramatic Opera 



Dramatic Pastoral

assumed that there was no theatrical production. I have given 
production dates only when I discovered these in original bills 
or when I found the dates in reliable authorities. 

3. Immediately following comes the record of Larpent and 
Lord Chamberlain's manuscripts. L. is used for the former (with 
press-mark, and date of licensing in square brackets); L.C. stands 
for the latter (with date of licensing not enclosed in brackets). 

4. Then are given indications of published editions, starting 
with separate octavos (if any) and proceeding to texts provided 
in the many collections of the period, such as: 

Acting Nat. Drama [The Acting National Drama (1837-1850), edited by 


Ames [Series of plays published by Ames, N.D.]. 
B.D. [The British Drama; 1824-1826]. 
Cumberland [Cumberland's British Theatre; dates from 1829 to about 

Cumberland Minor [Cumberland's Minor Theatre; dates from 1828 

to 1840]. 

Dicks [Dicks' Standard Plays, printed in the eighties]. 
Dicks B.D. [The British Drama, published by Dicks about 1880.] 
Douglas Minor N.Y. [Douglas's Minor Theatre (c. 1840), published in 

New York]. 

Duncombe [Duncombe's Edition (of Plays), mostly printed before 1850]. 
French [French's Acting Edition (a continuation of Lacy's). French's N.Y. 

and French's Minor N. Y. refer to the New York edition of French's 

series of plays]. 

Inchbald's B.T. [The British Theatre (1808), edited by Mrs Inchbald]. 
Lacy [Lacy's Acting Edition (c. 1850-1860)]. 
L.T. [The London Theatre (1815-1818), edited by T. J. Dibdin]. 
L.S. [The London Stage (1824-1827)]. 

Mod. Eng. Com. Th. [The Modern English Comic Theatre (c. 1850)]. 
New B.T. [The New British Theatre (c. 1860)]. 
Oxberry [Oxberry's Edition (1820-1822)]. 
Richardson Minor [Richardson's New Minor Drama (1828-31), edited by 

W.T. Moncneff]. 

The references to volumes of these collections follow the 
numeration of the British Museum exemplars. Sometimes the 
plays were bound in a different order. 

5. It has been found exceedingly difficult to attribute plays 
correctly to their authors. The MSS. cited above have proved of 
considerable service in this connection but before 1838 it is but 
seldom that these MSS. contain indication of authorship. For the 
period 1840-1850, however, I have been able to add considerably 
to the list of works known to have been written by such men as 
G. D. Pitt, Edward Stirling and Tom Taylor. A few plays are 
admitted here which either were written in an earlier period or 
were produced abroad. In such instances the name of the author 
is preceded by a single square bracket.
